"We'll never re-elect you if you wreck our NHS" is a rallying cry that needs shouting far and wide. (You can even have it ringing out from your mobile; go to Green Benches blogspot March 4th to find the ringtone). This video is a campaign song that explains why almost everyone connected with English healthcare is so angry about the Health and Social Care Bill. Cameron and Clegg are now pushing an ever more desperate Lansley to force this disastrous bill through parliament. If they succeed, they will let loose destructive forces that will destroy the NHS by stealth. If the topic doesn't bother you, just wait till you get ill in a few years' time!

The video tells it like it is. If you agree, make sure you spread the message. To read the lyrics just click on "show more" below. At the end of the video are some suggestions for ways you can help stop this destructive Bill becoming law.

The song, written by a lifelong health service researcher was recorded by several members of his family in his daughter's kitchen. He and his nurse wife mixed the graphics. We've never done anything like this before but we did this because we care about the NHS and what it means to our country.

.Oh the year is 2020 (and) my auntie's had a stroke
.Just basic care and send her home next day
.Some rehab would have helped her but the price was just a joke
.And that new insurance company wouldn't pay

It has its faults our NHS, but still it's up there with the best
We didn't vote you in for you to leave it such a mess
In Europe and the poor U.S. they pay much more and get much less
Your Bill will kill our public health and make us like the rest
We'll never re-elect you if you wreck our NHS

.Oh the year is 2025; can't find my own GP
.The only free one's twenty miles away........our local
.Surgery's run for profit while pretending that it's free
.Coz that new insurance company's got its way

.After 60 years our NHS is still regarded as the best (...at)
.. joining up our health care, and at keeping up our welfare,(...Now)
...your corporate pals are queuing up for a mega profit fest
That'll land us in the same old mess they've made in the US
We'll never re-elect you if you wreck our NHS

-- You knew, didn't you, the damage you would do`
-- Coz everyone who knows has told you so
-- So you hid the risks and lied, insisted you were right
-- Your so-called "listening" pause was just for show .....
--...It would take a man insane to ignore what they've been saying
-- But you're not mad, you knew what you were doing.....
-- ...You're opening up the path for your corporate pals to make
-- A killing from the tax we pay to you .....

When you deny you'll privatise, your lawyers know you're telling lies
GPs will find they're legally tied to private enterprise
So tell your money grabbing friends "Go back to the US!"
And leave our nurses and GPs to do what they do best
We'll never re-elect you if you wreck our NHS

.Oh the year is 2030 and there's not much care for free
.The best is only there if you can pay
.The good old logo's there to see, but it's not meant for you and me
.Coz that new insurance company's here to stay

It has its faults our NHS, but still it's up there with the best
Yet still you want your Bill made law to kill our NHS
You promised not to shake it up but launched this bloody mess
We'll never re-elect you if you wreck our NHS

(repeat chorus ad lib)
